What's the difference between Rise's Security Key and a Web3 Wallet?
Updated over a week ago

Welcome to Rise! We offer two convenient methods for securing your actions within the Rise app: connecting your web3 wallet (such as MetaMask and Coinbase) or creating a Rise Security Key (RSK). Both options are approvals for various actions, including Payments, Funding, Withdrawals, and Creating Pay Schedules.ย 

Remember that the RSK or the web3 wallet will be the account owner, meaning you must connect it to approve the transactions. Create your Rise ID by connecting a web3 wallet if you wish to use it to sign transactions. Otherwise, create an RSK.

To get started, let's explore the two methods:

Web3 Wallet Connection

You can connect it to your Rise account if you already have a web3 wallet, like MetaMask or Coinbase. By doing so, you can use your web3 wallet to sign and approve actions within Rise, ensuring an added layer of security. If you need to familiarize yourself with connecting your web3 wallet, click here for a detailed guide.

Rise Security Key (RSK)

For those who prefer not to use an external web3 wallet, you can create a Rise Security Key during onboarding. Your RSK is a password that you generate, consisting of 18-42 characters, including at least one unique character (!@#$%^&*_+) and at least one number. This unique key will serve as your approval mechanism within Rise. No need to download any additional apps or extensions โ€“ it's all built into Rise for your convenience and security.

Whether you choose the web3 wallet or the RSK method, rest assured that your actions within the Rise app will be protected and secure.
